Ended up getting two cineworld tickets  I ended up going alone, I was looking forward to having two seats to myself, but someone was sitting   in one of them.

 

Yay arrived after the last trailer played so missed a whole bunch of waiting.

 

After the movie a child said to her family ” I wish it was longer” ahh glad she liked it.

 

I really enjoyed it. It was lovely to look at and the musical was great. I feared that they song might be a little inaccessible .   Love the Witch .   I love Emily Blunt as the bakers wife.

I had planned to watch this yesterday but I missed the first screening and If I have the option I Try to avoid later screenings.

I tried to use the QR code on my phone to collect the ticket  but the ATM did not accept it.

There was no one to check my ticket on the second floor again. This happens a lot during off peak time.  I did see to two at least two staff members on the first level.

I was glad that I missed the ads.  It seemed for a while there that I have been early and had to wait 20 to 30mins for the movie to start.

The Screen was not full but had a decent amount. I think a person in front had never seen Annie because she seemed surprised at some of the plot points.

All the reviews I watched said this movie was one of the worst but as a soon as there is a musical number in anything I can forgive it anything.

 

I do like a re-telling.I am always interested to see how things are adapted. Sure it was a bit too “it’s a movie”.  I liked some of the changes in the songs even though I adorn the original music.  I wanted to hear how the would do “We got Annie” but they did not use that song.  I love the actress who played Annie she was cool.

  Thursday 3rd July 2015 – 19: 00 – The O2 – Screen 5   – No allocated seating

There is nothing like hearing some amazing singing.   I do love a musical. There is nothing like hearing really great singing voices.

This is one of the shows I had intended to watch on stage.  I first heard of it on the Radio when Tim Rice was on the show.

The staging was great. I have seen loads of shows and some times the staging can be very standard.  I  liked the choreography.

I was lost for sometime in the show.  They played the announcement about the bombing of Pearl Harbour and there was a conversation between  two of the main ladies about the war going on so at first I though that Pearl Harbour had happened it was not until the end that I found out that that conversation was a after the events and we flashed back.  I kinda didn’t understand the whole reason why the army wanted him to fight and/or play the bugle.

I kinda like American accent when done my people who don’t have American accents .

I usually have to hear a song more than once to  actually  know if I like it or not.  So it wasn’t until I heard : Robert Lonsdale – Fight the Fight  for the third time till I liked it.

 

I a tend not to like Slow mo  but on Stage I am impressed. There is part in the Fight the Fight song where there are slow mo sections that slow and speed up. Really cool to watch.   However there was a song  by Ryan Sampson  called Ryan Sampson – I Love the Army  which was only sang once (I think) and it was a great character song and I love it when characters are Ironic and have the pasted smile .   I recognised Ryan Sampson eventually and really loved his performance.

 

Darius Was awesome loved his performance his voice both speaking and sing voice was deep and strong.

Oh there is always a whole song : Siubhan Harrison – You Got the Money

It was so dark when I came into the screening . I had to use my mobile flashlight to find my seat, Oh I missed the start of the film but I had though that even with the lights down the path would be lit. It was so dark it was hard to see the seats at all you could not see if anyone was in them. Oh and someone was but he moved quickly.

I nornally don’t watch/read  reviews for movies that I know I am going to see but I decided too.  In light of that I don’t have much to add.  If you wanna know what Ithink  just ask.

I have been wanting to watch the live show for a while. I had wanted to watch the show before the movie but that didn’t happen.

35 Walking on Sunshine

Friday 06 June 2014  – – Screen 9 -The O2 – 17:50

walking on

 

 

I still want to watch Jersy Boys but the timeing is awkward. Even Walking on Sunshine had an awkward timing.

 

This was like Fan fiction made real.

 

If you ever listen to a song and make your world into a musical with the song.

 

I think  I have read many an Fan fiction which was exactly like this.   Not sure if this is deliberate because it’s “80’s” .

I didn’t hate it I love a musical but we all have seen enought  Glee to know how this type of thing works. After seeing  movie musical which try and make the musical “natural”  this a tiny bit  jarring.

 

There is a song “Turn back Time” and as soon as the main lady started sing in the church , ala Moulin Rouge  “Come what May”  a person behind me started laughing. I don’t blame him. I held my laughter in.
